None of us will disagree on the fact that a frittata is a super easy, super healthy and super delicious meal. Although I am sure the oven version would be much different…but this one was pretty good too. I could not get that typical brown color on top, but having said that, this was an absolutely delicious version. Again this was a relatively thinner version as compared to other frittatas. I used the veggies available on hand and about 7 organic eggs. Mustard greens did provide the required crunch while celery and chills together created a great flavor. Here is the recipe. This was actually our dinner, so we actually ate all of it in one meal.


Organic large eggs : 7-8
Curly mustard greens : coarsely chopped 2 cups
Red onion : 1 medium finely chopped
Celery stick : 1 thinly chopped
Garlic cloves : 3 finely chopped
Mexican small green chillis : 3-4 finely chopped
Carrot : 1 small chopped
Mini povirons : 2 small chopped
Farmer’s cheese : as desired
Salt and pepper to taste
Oil : 3/4 tbsp


  1. Beat the eggs properly. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Heat oil in the pan.
  3. Saute onion and garlic till onion become slightly translucent.
  4. Add carrot and mini povirons and saute for about 30 seconds.
  5. Add green chillis and celery and saute for about 30 seconds.
  6. Reduce the heat to medium and add mustard greens, some salt and mix well. Allow it to cook for about 30 seconds.
  7. Pour about 1/3 portion eggs to the mixture and let it settle a bit. Reduce the heat to medium-low.
  8. Make a layer with cheese in between. (I tried the Farmer’s cheese from Kroger’s Gourmet cheese collection. It was very creamy and in fact a bit higher in salt. And on melting it did not give that pull apart texture. But the taste was very nice.)
  9. Pour the rest of the beaten eggs on this and make the uniform layer.
  10. Add some more cheese over the top and some pepper.
  11. Cover the lid and let it cook for about 12-15 mins on medium low.
  12. Check once at about 8 mins with a knife to see how much is cooked. Do the same till you get a clear knife coming out.
  13. Slice into pizza-shaped wedges or eat whole just like we did.
